Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Strangers stopping strangers just to shake their hand

Well sir, I love the fact that I was alive, ready willing and able to tour with the Dead as much as I did. I never saw Pigpen, Keith or Donna, but I am without doubt eternally thankful that the recorded works of all lineups is so readily available to me. You strike a nerve with this post. I’d like to think that I have new found friends here, indeed as I previously have stated my participation in the forum changed my life in a way that I did not think possible. It has crossed my mind that there is a lot of knocking, but this is a free forum and we live in a free society.

The Jerry Garcia and company that changed my life forever may have not been the same group that I was too young (or later occupied) to have enjoyed in person, but I know I was not alone in appreciating them for what they were. I loved the way Jerry sang and played, the way the group jammed out together, the freedom I felt at a show where I could let it all hang out. I loved the way Brent sang and played and thought he was one of the most soulful singers I had ever heard in person. Thank you Hippie for getting me to say this. Peace. Ps. I’m not having an identity crisis; I just recently had a real life lesson in the value of anonymity. (such as it is)

The what if's are intangibles to me I don,'t understand them. I read alot of these post because I'm interested and want to learn more about the band, I really love the stories,it's a folk presence I've had in my life for a great many years now, I'm just not going to be pretenious enough to know what was better for the GD. I know maybe I'm showing my ignorant side and I am a bi-polar Gemini anyways,so forgive me if I trying to stick up for Mickey,Donna,Brent,Keith,Bobby,Pigpen,TC,Phil,Billy,Bruce and Jerry.
My apologizes for the pretentious comment back there you all free to dream and hypothizes all you want. I understand and love this archive and forum, wanting a censorship for comments or ideas was never the purpose of my original post.Just wantrd to say hello

Somebody to Love? How about Grace Slick. The model turned Jefferson Airplane singer slept with every member of the group but somehow missed vocalist Marty Balin. That includes guitarists Pau Kantner and Jorma Kaukonen, bassist Jack Casady and drummer Spencer Dryden. Slick didn't always keep it intramural, as she even had an affair with The Doors' Jim Morrison that involved a bedful of smashed strawberries -- giving a new definition to the phrase "jam session"!
